Learning, Working and Achieving Together

Home Learning

Home Learning

At Yeading Junior School, we believe home learning consolidates and reinforces knowledge, conceptual understanding and skills across the curriculum, helping to raise the level of achievement of individuals. We recognise that education is most effective where there is a positive partnership between home and school. Home learning provides opportunities for teachers, parents and children to work together, thereby fostering an effective partnership between home and school. We are confident that home learning will increase a child’s enjoyment of learning and their depth of understanding. In turn this will continue to enhance the culture of lifelong learning and aid our pupils as they develop a habit of home learning which will support their success in secondary school and beyond.

 

Home Learning is set on Google classroom on a Thursday and returned on a Thursday to be assessed.

Reading

It is a priority that all children at Yeading Junior School spend time reading to an adult. This develops the culture of reading for pleasure and supports the partnership between home and schools. Minimum requirements for reading at home are set out in the table on the following page. We also expect parents/carers to record the outcomes of reading with their child, in every child’s reading record five times weekly. Children must bring the book they are reading and their reading record to school everyday. Children have access to Library books and visit the school library once a week. In addition they are able to borrow ‘Must reads’, which are high quality texts linked to their curriculum, from their classes. We would also encourage children to read books, magazines and even comics that they have either borrowed from community libraries or maybe purchased.
